WARNING: TR site weirdness planned for Wed. June 28

By Jay Garmon Contributor ·
Just a heads up to all the hardcore TechRepublic fanatics out there. We're going to briefly shut down our global user authentication system for maintenance on Wednesday, June 28, 2006 from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm Pacific Time.

This shutdown may or may not affect any TR feature that requires a member to log in (posting, editing, visiting restricted forums, viewing customized feeds such as Posts From My Contacts, updating profiles, saving items, subscribing to alerts, or modifying newsletter subscriptions). It may also cause unanticipated weirdness, so expect the unexpected.

If stuff is still screwy on Thursday morning, send up a flare.

Nice to know.

Few admins would even say anything until it happened. No one ever gets warned, least of all the help desk to as to avoid flooding. It's difficult to remember that your initial objective was to drain the swamp when you're up to to your a$$ in aligators.

No! No!

All right, if you must, go ahead and fix stuff but without the current weirdness TR will never be the same.
